Ballot proposition pros & cons topic of AAUW meeting


The public is invited by the Del Mar-Leucadia Branch of the American Association of University Women to a presentation on the pros and cons of the propositions on the November 2018 ballot. The AAUW event is Oct. 13, 10 a.m. to noon at the Encinitas Community Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive, Encinitas.

Representatives from the League of Women Voters North County San Diego will discuss the state propositions as well as San Diego County and local city measures. Each presenter will discuss the key issues of each proposition, what the consequences of a “yes” or “no” vote will be, how the propositions are funded and by whom, and the important facts surrounding the propositions. Attendees will receive materials to use in following the discussion and taking notes as well as information on how to research further on unbiased websites.
